Feminism recognizes the inadequacy of male-created ideologies and struggles for the spiritual, economic social and racial equality of women. Feminism in Contemporary Indian Women Writers is a latest attempt ot explore and criticise the Indian Women Writers. The anthology covers a unique collection of twenty five scholarly papers from eminent scholars of India. The Indian Women Writers analysed in this anthology are: Anita Desai, Manju Kapur, Shashi Deshpande, Shobha De, Jhumpa Lahiri, Kamala Markandaya, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Arundhati Roy, Radhika Jha and Nayantara Sahgal.
On the whole the anthology covers a fairy comprehensive ground. It is hoped that the anthology will be of great help to the students, reserachers and scholars of English literature and will even appeal to those interested in Indian Women Writers.
